Not a ‘tough guy’ just a retired guy.Here's a question for all the tough guys here . . . . Is the whole neck-break-from-behind-to-kill someone that you alwasy see in the movies a real thing I don't doubt that it could paralyze you, but does that really cause instant death?
Asking for a friend.
I’m unfamiliar with current protocols but in the 60s (and maybe pre-60s) a properly placed “talon” blade both physically paralyzed (severing the Vagus nerve) and silently removed any potential to alert others of the attack. Pulling the blade another 1-2 inches, severed the carotid resulting in the immobilized/silent target to quietly bleed out.
Movies don’t capture the horror and smells of close manual combat.
